Tankman in America is a novel based upon Rod's involvement with an asylum seeker support group since 1993, at which time a group of INS detainees from the ship-wrecked Golden Venture illegally bearing said undocumented persons from China, was brought to York County Prison. His self-appointed role as part of the support group was to write freedom songs which he would sing at the weekly Sunday vigils. The detention and vigils went on more than four years. Though the detainees couldn't hear his music from inside York County Prison, Rod had the feeling his songs of freedom had a certain power and that he shouldn't give up on them. In 2001 he put out a CD of his favorite original freedom songs, Where is the Freedom? This CD can be obtained online at www.cdbaby.com/cd/robertmerrill His favorite activities are: playing with his grandchildren; playing his stringed instruments; playing his racquet sports; reading and enjoying literature primarily in various foreign languages; playing bridge or Scrabble; writing; pursuing spiritual insight; being together with his extended family; hanging out at hunting and fishing camp; doing puzzles; picking up litter, doing yard work or small house projects, and doing the dishes. He sings as a Hospice volunteer at nursing homes. He is against all forms of brainwashing, whether religious or jingoistic. He believes all people should live in freedom.
